April Favourites

I can't believe it's that time of the month again! I've been trying to curb my spending over April so I've not really had the chance to discover any new favourites but I've been loving the idea of being re-introduced to some oldies and I've discovered products in my stash that I'd forgotten I have! 

My ultimate favourite this month has got to be my Deliciously Ella cookbook! Since my gym finally reopened at the beginning of the month, I've made it my mission to change my eating habits and make healthier choices and I have this book of treasures to thank for that! I've been a fan of Ella's blog for a while, so I was excited to get my arse into gear and try out some recipes and I've not looked back since! The best part is that the ingredients are all things you can easily find in a supermarket or Holland & Barrett which makes it so much simpler to follow the recipes on a regular basis.

I've been reaching for MAC's Velvet Teddy all month long after finally jumping on the bandwagon and lemme tell ya...it's a good un'! I'm always reluctant to give into the hype of expensive beauty products but I'm so glad that I finally did on this one! Maybelline's Brow Satin has been a breath of fresh into my makeup routine over April. I misplaced my beloved S&G Archery brow pencil so was in need of a newbie (I stupidly found it again 2 days later though...doh!) and so began a love affair with Brow Satin which has transformed my brow routine and made it so much easier! If you haven't tried this yet, I urge you to go out RIGHT NOW and buy one!
Of course, I couldn't write a favourites post without including a little something from Lush and this month I have been all over the King Of Skin Body Butter, which is a solid moisturiser bar similar to their massage bars! It's fab when you're lazy like me and are in need of a quick moisturizing fix as you can keep it your bedside table and it doesn't take up much room! It smells amazing too and it nourishes my skin for hours.

Soap & Glory has been one of favourite skincare brand for months now but I've reached for their products more and more in April. Firstly the No Clogs Allowed face mask which is fab for getting rid of horrible unwanted blackheads and gunk on your face (yum!) and great if you're a lazy bones as it cleanses, scrubs and lightly moisturises the skin all in one! On a daily basis, I've been using For Daily Youth facial wash, which is a great quick fix for morning or evening to freshen up your face. 
Lastly is my current Netflix addiction which I mentioned in my Netflix Faves post...Once Upon A Time! I won't go into too much detail but basically if you like fairytales and Disney, you'll love it!

  3. I might try out the brow pencil some time... I never use a pencil for my brows though... Is it a good one for starters? :)
